Football insider saying Tarkowski wants to join West Ham this summer Thoughts people.


1.) 15 Jun 2021 23:02:27
Thought it was a good move last season trying to get him in
But he was way overpriced hopeful they more realistic if we go back in for him.

2.) 16 Jun 2021 08:13:16
I imagine Burnley are going to want £20+ million for Tarkowski which on the face of it isn't bad for a Premier League proven central defender in this day and age. However, he is 28 and there are, in my opinion, younger players who are as good as him but with potential to be better, available for less. Duje Caleta-Car for example is 24 and rumoured to be available for £13 million. David Zima is 20 and rumoured to be available for £10 million. both of which, I would take over Tarkowski to keep a bigger budget on other areas.

3.) 17 Jun 2021 11:26:39
Caldera-Car looks the real deal to me. We have got a couple of U23s coming through too.



05 Apr 2021 12:05:31
Declan out for 2 Games with knee injury so one assumes Noble comes in he's going to have to be at his best.


1.) 05 Apr 2021 14:06:31
We have been very lucky with Rice/ Soucek fitness, but this is a real blow
and highlights how desperately we need CM back up like Kral.

2.) 05 Apr 2021 17:53:53
Could Coufal play in midfield alongside Soucek with Johnson at right back, Coufal gets forward and knows how to defend and has got the legs to go 90mins unlike Noble?

3.) 05 Apr 2021 21:42:02
Here we go again 3-0 up and now 3-2.

4.) 06 Apr 2021 12:46:43
Do you ever have anything positive to write?
Every hammers fan on here may have been fearing the worse when it went to 3.1 but the fact we held on and by all accounts were very good in the first half, should be something to be pleased about. I just feel some people just can’t wait to knock us and whilst I don’t think everything Moysie has done has been great he has helped put this club back on the map and I’m sick of whinging hammers. I’m sure if we won the league you would still be moaning.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 22:41:32
its noble or the youngster coventry whom a few of the staff have been raving the fact he ain't even made the bench surprises me.



13 Mar 2021 16:42:29
Remenissing the other day about the Ludo Miklosko song the other day and started wondering which of today's squad you could apply it to and what would the lyrics be.




01 Feb 2021 11:57:57
Looks like Winston is on his way to Brentford I for one will wish him all the best.


1.) 01 Feb 2021 21:18:25

Team talk say Everton interested in Anderson Ed you heard anything at all.


{Ed002's Note - No, it would not be possible now.}

1.) 12 Jan 2021 09:09:13
Not doubting what you are saying Ed, not in the slightest. but is it because of the fact he has been registered by two clubs already this season?

If West Ham do recall Anderson, surely we would know this? hahaha.

I may have dreamed this but is it not a case of the whole C.V. and the financial restraints it has inflicted on clubs that Fifa and Uefa are willing to be a little more relaxed in their loan rules?

{Ed002's Note - Everton has no interest.}

2.) 12 Jan 2021 12:39:50
I thought AC Milan we’re interested?

{Ed002's Note - Milan would be open to taking Anderson for the summer after losing out on Dominik Szoboszlai. If they were to buy him in January they would have to not play, or be loaned to West Ham or Porto for the remainder of the season.}

3.) 12 Jan 2021 13:54:55
Ed002’s, That’s not surprising, very sensible😂👍👍bet you’re pleased Ed as I think you are an Evertonian? 👍⚒.

{Ed002's Note - That would be Ed025.}

4.) 12 Jan 2021 16:20:24
Hahaha. That would be why then Ed. Thanks.

5.) 13 Jan 2021 05:22:58
Ed I read that FIFA are going to relax the rules about two clubs because of C.V. - no truth to that? I read it in conjunction with the Anderson stories.

{Ed002's Note - The rule is he can be registered for three and play for two. I am not sure what CV has to do with that and am not aware of any proposed changes to the rules. But if that is what has been said ...}

Very sad watching Denmark v Finland my thoughts with Mrs Ericson and Family praying for you all.




24 May 2021 17:54:03
A great season but what for you made it great.

For me it was the 4 0 win over Wolves followed by beating Leicester 3 0 and coming back to 3 3 against Spurs those 3 consecutive game's set us up for the rest of the season.


1.) 24 May 2021 18:38:46
So many highlights:

All of the centre backs
Etc, etc

But for me, Soucek and Coufal have been staggeringly good.

2.) 24 May 2021 21:09:53
Coufal is my POTY. Soucek, Rice, Fornals have been superb this year, they ran for everything. It was like having 3 young Mark Nobles. Glad Nobles last year finishes with a run in Europe, bloke deserves it.
Bit concerned about Fabs, his injuries are becoming more often.
Need to move a few players on; Anderson being one. I think Balbuena is worth another season.

3.) 25 May 2021 07:11:49
Agree again with all the above posts👍Initially I was sceptical of us getting into Europe simply because of our squad size, Premiership, Euro and internationals games is a lot to cope with in a season? But such a great achievement by DM and his backroom staff and of course the terrific efforts of of all our players especially the newer additions who already been mentioned!
Said sometime ago our Fabulous Fab now getting injured again in the warm ups is a big concern, although Randolph is a very capable keeper, but we need an experienced replacement for Fab I regret to say?
We got rid of a couple of very expensive non producers in Wilshere and Haller as well, hopefully Now we can do the same with Anderson and Yarmelenko to help us with new signings, plus retaining those we have? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.



27 Apr 2021 19:18:05
Balbuena red card overturned - there's a surprise. When are these referees going to actually use some common sense and look at the whole movement not just the slowed down film

VAR should be re termed VAD Video Aided Decision and referees instructed to view the whole thing in real time for go's sake Mike Riley if you are in charge sort things out.


1.) 27 Apr 2021 20:53:02
. and we’ll never know if we’d have equalised.



25 Apr 2021 15:04:46
Been a lot of talk about Tammy Abraham coming to West Ham think he would be a good fit with Linguard if we can sign both of them.


1.) 25 Apr 2021 16:16:08
Agree. Think Abrahams would be an upgrade on Antonio, who is always injured nowadays. I’d sell Antonio now whilst he has value.



18 Apr 2021 18:25:58
So 6 clubs wish to form with other European clubs a breakaway super league. If West Ham were to take part that would be an end to my 60 year man an boy association with the club.
This is, as far as I am concerned unadulterated greed and gives no consideration to the traditions, fair play and opportunities of all teams that play football from the so called top 6 to the team from the dog and duck.


{Ed002's Note - This is nothing new - it has been going on for years.}

1.) 18 Apr 2021 21:03:43
Agreed Ed have heard this since I was a boy and generally it is so the clubs can get some financial guarantees and leads to UEFA changing the European Cup rules to accommodate them.

{Ed002's Note - It is rather more than that - if you have a look on the European pages there is some more information Sid.}

2.) 19 Apr 2021 06:26:13
Yes have read that 12 clubs have signed up, but I’m pretty sure that happened prior to the Champions League too. Regardless if it happens I would hope FIFA would ban players from playing internationals and the leagues prevent them from playing domestically, much like WSC cricket with the difference being WSC helped a game that had little money going to players, football doesn’t need this so just ban them all and let’s see what the extra money gets them then.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 06:43:07
Would this breakaway make Lingards decision easier, weather to stay or go, and could these clubs possibly get punished with a points deduction?

4.) 19 Apr 2021 10:16:34
seems to me the time of the announcement is critical to there aims they state they wish to remain in there respective leagues and create a closed of competition with guarantees of being in the in the money . they already have there goals and this league idea seems in my eyes to give them leverage over uefa/ fifa in talks about changing and shaping future competition rules and more importantly payments. i'm against it personally but do you think Argentina/ brazil will stop players like messi etc from playing for the nations side. Seems the leagues/ uefa are pissed because the clubs are going to try and dictate payments and we all know how greedy these governing bodies are, already you can read between the lines they will ban players etc small talk is we want to keep everyone happy.

{Ed002's Note - The position of FIFA right now is that players would not be available for selection if they play for non-FIFA clubs.}

5.) 19 Apr 2021 11:30:33
It won’t be Argentina or Brazil’s decision it will be FIFAs.

6.) 19 Apr 2021 13:06:03
your missing the point i am trying to make Brazil/ Argentina are not going to agree to not having there best players notbeing available they will want some form of compromise then major sponsors will also want the best players on show then if they organized a competition at the same time as say the euros competing for air time most of these major sporting events are staged to avoid clashes of major events i know what your saying about fifa how many of the brazilan squad are in those 12 break away sides also spain and england also have a high percentage of players within those squads money talks that's all i'm saying.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is very clear and simple. Players for clubs which are competing in any unaffiliated league will not be able to play in the World Cup, Euros, etc.. I am not sure why you are struggling to understand this.}

7.) 19 Apr 2021 23:04:31
It is exactly what happened with World Series Cricket and in Australia with Rugby Super League, the players were banned and I hope the same happens here.

8.) 20 Apr 2021 03:24:09
im not struggling to understand this ed02 i'm just speculating about the bigger picture if they opted to push forward with this mad plan if it was one team ok but 12 is a big number which could rise to 15 gives them a big voice if they have to negotiate a new deal based around the champions league format proposal . We all know its about money over the past few years a lot of big clubs have been shown to be flaky. The worse thing was those that arranging the new champions league format were secretly where working on something else, Devious f@@kers also with all the players could be potentially free agents?

Don't know much about onana but all poked at Veclik a couple of weeks ago he seems to have lost his place at Seville due to Injury and wasn't offered a guaranteed 1st place, hence him turning down a new contract. You do worry about goalies who have had injuries. I watched Trott a free times a couple of years ago and thought he had promise. Do perhaps Moyes has a long term plan for the position.

Hi Die 4 I think it's a bit short sighted not to sign a keeper as Fab only has 1 year left and has had a few injury probs. I really like Johnstone and evidently he likes west ham. Listening to the England game where Stuart Pearce was commentating it was clear he likes him as well.

Have to ask why Abraham isn't getting into the Chelsea side whilst Werner isn't scoring goals. Would love to hear from Chelsea fans what they think of him

He can obviously score goals but is their an attitude problem.

We have a great dressing room at the moment wouldn't like to see that change.

Thanks ed always great to get you guys perspective rather than MSM rumours.


{Ed077's Note - well I don't have any insight info so my "perspective" is mostly my opinion. But then the MSM are mostly full of cr@p and seem to throw random names around linking them with any club they please without any info or corroboration.}

Rumour is that Man it'd will let up to 4 keepers go and the want Pope

Ed you heard anything on this?


{Ed077's Note - you mean Man United? Romero is out of contract and leaving in the summer for free I believe, Lee Grant is going to retire and move into a coaching role and Joel Pereira is probably going to be let go as well. So Man Utd don't want to lose either of De Gea or Henderson but Dean might become more restless and things might change. And Pope will not be the first choice GK at Man Utd and he most likely wouldn't move there to be 2nd choice I would think.}

That was an awful performance last night from the whole team , Pickford accepted, every time the fullbacks went over the halfway line they turned round and went backwards, Rice and Philips were doing a Noble in moving it sideways and the front 3 were continually behind the game. Even Freakish did nothing when he came on. The Czechs will run rampant over this lot it will be interesting to watch the Battle of Rice and Souzec.

Good Post Whitby re the striker situation I see there a big fella playing for Ajax scored 11 goals in 19 games this year plus some assists as well worth a punt do you reckon? He's called Seb Haller.

Points win prizes and having dropped 5 in the last 2 games it's our own fault. However when you watch a game where once again highly disputable refereeing decisions influence games I do despair. My own opinion had the West Brom goal that was disallowed had been a Liverpool goal it would have been allowed and the Allison goal, good as it was was well into the 5th minute of 4 minutes of extra time. Wasn't Mike Dean stopped from reffing a Liverpool cup game in the past. I still can't figure out why he gave a free kick which led to Liverpool s first goal either. I often wonder whether some refs are cheats or incompetent I do hope it's the latter.
